Manchester United want to sign both Raphael Varane and and Toni Kroos from Real Madrid this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that Jose Mourinho is losing patience with Paul Pogba at Old Trafford and that the Red Devils could use the midfielder as “bait” as they look to overhaul their squad this summer.

The same story says that the two players at the top of Manchester United’s transfer wishlist are Varane and Kroos as Mourinho looks to transform his team into genuine title contenders next season.

The Red Devils are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they look to finish as close to champions elect Manchester City as possible.

The same report says that Real Madrid currently value France defender Varane, 24, at around £70m and Germany midfielder Kroos, 28, at around £100m.

Manchester United are likely to be on the lookout for a number of reinforcements this summer as Mourinho looks to assemble a squad capable of challenging Manchester City’s dominance at the top of the table.

The Red Devils will take on Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup semi-finals next month as they look to try and win a trophy this term.
